Wang Ji-hye cast in Personal Taste
Not too long after her last drama, last year’s dark and intense Friend, Our Legend, actress Wang Ji-hye is coming back with a lighter, more upbeat role in Personal Taste playing best friend and rival to Sohn Ye-jin‘s main character.
It looks like the drama is going to be conflating a few of the characters in the book for Wang’s character, who is a materialistic stewardess who steals Sohn’s boyfriend. (In the book, these are characteristics shared by a few different women, but I suppose it makes sense to condense the cast for the drama.) This role will also give Wang the chance to showcase a fashionable wardrobe, which will probably contrast with Sohn’s dowdy duds.
Personal Taste airs at the end of March.
